Ex-military Land Rovers and Unimogs headline Pickles auction

More than 120 ex-military vehicles are set to go under the hammer at the Pickles online auction.

AUSTRALIAN industrial equipment auctioneer Pickles is set to host its largest online auction of military goods, consisting of more than 120 ex-military vehicles and 800 lots of ex-military general goods.

Among the line-up of ex-military vehicles will be a range of Land Rover Defender 110s in various military configurations including wagons, dual-cab utes and 6x6 infantry carriers.

If Defenders aren’t your idea of the perfect off-road rig, Pickles also has a range of Mercedes-Benz Unimogs and Mack 6x6 trucks that may strike your fancy.

Other ex-military vehicles that are listed in the auction include Polaris UTVs and a handful of dual-purpose motorcycles.

Spares, engines, gearboxes, trailers and fittings for these ex-military vehicles are also among the general goods to be auctioned.

According to Pickles, the stock was sourced from Australian Frontline Machinery, which is the “exclusive seller of vehicles and equipment direct from the Australian Defence Force”.

Public viewing of the listed items will be held from October 4-5 at Thurgoona, NSW, with the online auction taking place from September 27 to October 8 (for Land Rovers, trucks and motorcycles) and September 27 to October 5/6 (for the general goods).
